Procurement Specialist

Job Type: Full time | Company: chemonics International | Location: Tripoli, Libya | Date posted: 23-05-2016

Scope of Work


Job Title:            Procurement Specialist

Project:               Libya Transition Initiative (LTI) 2

Classification:     Long Term

Reports to:         Program Manager



The Libya Transition Initiative (LTI) 2 project is a 3 year task order under the SWIFT IV IQC with a ceiling of $74.7 million. The program aims to support Libyan efforts to build an inclusive and peaceful democratic future that reflects the will and needs of the Libyan people. Through Chemonics International, USAID/OTI partners with civil society organizations, local media outlets, and interim governing authorities to strengthen civic activism by building capacity and connecting networks and bolster security by supporting moderate voices and strengthening local initiatives to mitigate conflict

LTI 2 focuses on three priority areas of programming listed below:

1.        Community engagement activities;

2.       Supporting moderate voice; and

3.       Supporting political processes and national dialogue


In each of these areas, LTI 2 works to increase access to information, promote dialogue, and provide platforms for civil society to effectively engage with the Libyan government. LTI 2 also seeks to strengthen moderate voices that are committed to a peaceful transition, and works to empower underrepresented groups – particularly women, youth, minorities, and communities in peripheral regions – to advocate and participate in the political process. Additionally, the project supports quick-impact projects with tangible benefits that strengthen bonds, build trust, and foster linkages between government and communities.
